Anything at all, even a series of inks or anything. I have gotten some extra money and I'm looking to spend around $100 of it on scrapbooking stuff. Nothing too huge but I really want to hear a lot of other favorites.

I don't remember life without my ATG gun or my Ranger Distress Ink Pads. Seriously. I joke. No, I don't. Aside from my crazy addiction to paper (and that, DCWV stacks), ATG gun and Distress Inks are tops on my list. After that, stamps. I crave more stamps!

Border punches! I have only the basic ones but I find that I use them on almost every layout. They definitely add a special touch, especially if I mat my pictures with them.

Also, my exacto knife! I do a lot of hand cutting since I don't own a die cut machine. Scissors just can't get into the nooks and crannies like the exacto knife.

I'm very basic when it comes to tools ... the ONLY paper cutter/trimmer I can stand to use -- is a rotary cutter. I don't like any of the traditional paper cutters because I never get as accurate of a cut as I do with a ruler, cutting mat and my rotary cutter.

It depends on what you need.

Organization/Storage would be first on my list, since many of those items always seem to cost a little bit more.

Tools - ATG, Trimmer, Border Punches, BindItAll, Cuttlebug & or the Slice are each really good investments!

Just For Fun & or To Stock Up - Patterned Paper/Paper Packs, Embellishments, Flowers, Ribbon, etc.

HTH!

Something that is under $100.00 I would say my Sizzix BigKick I love using folders and some of the big cuts for cards; Purse and Onsie cards.

If I had and extra $100.00 to buy scrap supplies I would say that I might buy an ATG Gun.

what can't i live without.

definitely i love stocking up on paper. if you like pp, basic grey and DCWV are good, i am just getting into the stacks myself.

stickles...maybe not every color but at least the basics, gun metal, and icicles.

some journaling stamps. i think its a great way to incorporate your own handwriting on a layout.

a few colors of ink pads. i am basic since i don't stamp much. i have clear for embossing, black, blue and red.

brads. i have tons of brads because they have so many uses.

a paper piercer. i use mine on almost every layout. they are cheap but so handy.

thickers and other alphabet letters.

these are my MUST HAVES

I would say border punches, nestabilities, cuttlebug embossing folders, tool essentials like scissors, trimmer and hermafix, also Tsukinko Graphite Black Ink for stamping.

Signos are pens. They make the best white pen IMO. It writes so much better then all others I have seen.

Sorry so late to respond! lol I think I'm going to get some more stamps, embossing stuff, perfect pearls, and some things like that. I have a ton of papers and such already.


Are the stickles really that great? I'm not a huge glitter fab person so I'm a little leary of them. lol Does anyone have any lo's they use them on that I can see?
